news also asked the folks if the obama administration has tried to mislead americans about the attacks on libya. 44% say yes. 47% say no. full-timably president obama's hand links of libya. 47% approve. 47% disprove. much of the mainstream libya has covered the president over libya and the issue has not gained big time traction. fox news correspondent catherine herridge reports she reviewed a cable sent why by the u.s. mission to the secretary of state hillary clinton on august 16th. it went to mrs. clinton's office. it stated americans in benghazi did not believe the consulate could be defended against a coordinated attack. of course on 9/11 there were coordinated terrorist attacks that killed ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans. it is clear the obama administration was warned and did nothing. that's a pretty big story and the press has ignored it saying over and over again his administration is investigating. here is a flash. the fox news investigative team has uncovered far more about libya than the obama administration has. which is kind of interesting, don't y
administration is investigating. but so much, so much misinformation has been but the out there by the obama administration you would think that six weeks after the attack some kind of clarity could be put forth by the president he doesn't have to do it because the press is not pushing him. brian williams, one of the few journalists mr. obama is talking with, had a chance to ask him some tough questions, mr. williams passed. >> the assessment of your intelligence community as we stand here is that it was a spontaneous terrorist attack. were you happy with what you were able to learn as it unfolded? it went on for several hours. >> well, as i have said, brian, we're going to do a full investigation, obviously when four americans are killed, you know, you have to do some soul searches in terms of making sure that all our systems are where they need to be. and that's what we're going to find out. but, who what i'm confident about is that we will be able to figure out who perpetrated this act and bring them to justice and we are confident that we have the cooperation of the libyan government. >>
creation begin and we have seen all of the jobs lost during the four years of the obama administration regained. that is what you are going to hear from president obama at 8:30 this morning when the jobs numbers come out. we are certain it will be positive, create 125,000 jobs. if it's less than 100, republicans are going pounce on that. if it's more than 150 or close to 200, obama administration is going to go on that. what you are going to hear about is the unemployment rate, 7.8%. it drops, probably going go to 7.9%. christine will explain why the job loss and creation numbers are different from unemployment. the bar chart is the more important number. the bottom line is, all you are going to hear is spend and we are going tell you what matters. it is going to be a deciding factor for many voters. >> the jobs number is a number you see. you have been on the ground in ohio. we want to know what it feels like there when it comes to jobs. what are people saying? >> reporter: yeah. so, you know ohio has been hard hit. i was in youngstown, the second biggest deal maker in the country aft
. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. the president took office, there were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of the bush administration into the obama administration. and now the fight has been, the political fight has been over the durability of the recovery and jobs since then. when you go to the right of that chart you can see we have been adding jobs now for two years but we haven't been adding necessarily enough jobs to every month keep up with the increase of people in the working-age population, and to recover all of those jobs that had been lost. so that's where we stand right now. 125,000 jobs is the forecast for today. about an hour and a half, and 7.9% is the unemployment rate. it's the last big hurdle before the election. the last big piece of economic news for both campaigns, and for people to weigh before they make the decision on who to vote for. >> it's not just economic news. it has all the political implications. especially in the final days. that chart we've seen on the political campaign on both sides of the debate. christine, than
terror attack, the obama administration did not convene its top counter-terrorism resource, that being the counter-terrorism security group, which has the ability to coordinate all asset, all agencies to respond to a potential terror attack. forks news has confirmed that emails exist showing the key responders were ready to deploy but were upon called upon by the u.s. government. one official told cbs news tonight, the csg is the one group that is supposed to know what resources every agency has. now, they know of multiple options and had the ability to coordinate counter-terrorism assets across all the agencies. they were not allowed to do their job. they were not called upon. meanwhile, the house oversight committee sent a letter to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, asking about documents that indicate that people affiliated with the libyan government may have been involved in the attack. joiningous this breaking news, former new york city mayor, rudy guiliani. there is a likelihood that power is not going to be back on in new york until... some estimates, november 11 or beyon
that the obama administration promised if there are tapes that we could hear that caused ty woods to disobey orders, risk his military career, his life, and then he gave his life, why not release them to the american people before the election so we can get a full picture of the truth? i'm sure you'll join me in calling for that transparency. >> i would join you in calling ty woods a hero. > >> sean: why not release the tapes that caused him to disobey orders? >> you act as if the tape is conclusive. there's a much bigger story. >> sean: my sources tell me it's pretty damning, juan. they're begging for help. >> i've not heard that from anybody. >> sean: you learned it here first. >> the added security was asked for the capital in tripoli. >> sean: that's not true. the ambassador asked for security. it was denied. >> the undersecretary testified here in washington before congress to that, sean. > >> sean: we also have a woman who testified that the state department was watching this whole thing unfold in real-time. >> it's the same woman. >> sean: the president wouldn't acknowledge it two wee
to the disaster zone, sending 24 million gallons of extra gas, a welcome sign. the obama administration is hiring trucks to bring the gas to staging areas. all this is unfolding four days before the general election. president obama and governor romney fighting it out for every last vote, especially in the key state of ohio. today the latest cnn poll shows obama with a very slight edge there, but there's everything to play for. today, the last jobs report before election day was released. unemployment ticking up to 7.9%, but at the same time, 171,000 jobs were created. no surprise, both candidates reacted differently to the news. >> today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. this morning we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today, we learned that it's actually 7.9% and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> mitt romney earlier today. you're looki
, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the federal response, it's been from individuals not taking the necessary steps to be ready. and then in the crisis, doing things that they shouldn't be doing. >> well said. mr. mayor, good to see you. >> thank you. always good to see you. >>> now to breaking news on hurricane sandy. it's a huge storm system taking dead aim on the east coast. moving slowly and bringing the threat of a possible catastrophe. it's already impacting the presidential campaign with governor romney, vice president biden and first lady michelle obao obama canceling events. meteorologist chad myers is tracking the event. i read your tweet, after 26 years in tv weather, two years with nraa, sandy may pose the greatest risk to human life i have seen. >> that was last night. >> dire warning. is it as dire today as it seemed last night? >> i don't think so. because the storm today, and that's the twitter universe, that was exactly what i was thinking at that moment in time. we had, on computer models, three cat 3s, almost cat 4s, going into new york
growth rate of the economy. it's actually the number of jobs that the obama administration predicted last february. now, we're way short of that and we will remain short of it as long as this president is pursuing these policies. but governor romney isn't putting out there anything other than what happens if we restore basic health to the american economy. it's achievable. couple major things. first of all, the tax reform proposal that the governor has put on the table is absolutely essential and every independent economist that has looked at it says it will create a lot of new jobs. you bring down the rates, broaden the base, bringing down the rates and broadening the base encourages productive investment as opposed to tax driven investment. it's what reagan did. i was there when the congress did it. it can help create a tremendous amount of jobs. we're all aware in this country we have this tremendous potential in the energy sector. some of it has been materiali materialized. over the objections and resistance of the federal government. the government will do a number of things like bui
refused to endorse any candidate in 2008 said in the aftermath of hurricane sandy the obama administration's efforts to address environmental issues proved more important than ever. and he went on to say, when i step into the voting booth i think about the world i want to leave my two daughters and the values that are required to guide us there. the two party nominees for president offer different vision on where they want to lead america. one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence at risk management above electoral politics." if you want to see what putting electoral politics over scientific evidence and risk management looks like, here it is. >> what about climate? that's what caused this monster storm. climate change. >> once again, mitt romney doesn't say a word because in conservative crowds the science of climate change is just too controversial. climate change is something that you can just heckle right on out of the room. it's not connected to floods or fires or devastation we saw this week
.s. conference of catholic bishops has weighed in perhaps strongly than they have in decades opposing the obama administration's health care plan when it comes to providing funding for contraception and, you know, the evangelical vote is key in iowa and ohio. if those voters get in the race and vote for mitt romney as they're telling me they will and don't sit it out as many did in 2008, that's huge. >> certainly going to be interesting to watch. poppy, thank you. >>> we have this programming note for you. cnn's anderson cooper takes a final close look at the candidates in america's choice 2012 countdown to election day. sunday night, 8:00 eastern. it is right here on cnn. >> 48 minutes after the hour right now and some signs of normalcy in new york after sandy. subways are back in service on a limited basis but laguardia airport will open again this morning. amazingly fast. i really didn't think it would get open this quickly again. we'll have the latest coming up next.

the president himself, but also the overall administration, governor christie saying that the obama administration acted very quickly in not only declaring the state of emergency for the state of new jersey, but also a disaster declaration. so he had a lot of kind words for the president. they will be joined, as we pointed out, together, getting a chance to see some of the damage up close, but also the president will be talking with residents there who have been affected by the hurricane, and also talk to first responders. what you're seeing from the white house is a real aggressive effort to show that the president is staying on top of this disaster. releasing a couple of photographs of the president inside the situation room, getting briefings. overnight, i'm told by a white house official, the president got a number of briefings, and will get another briefing this morning, a briefing that's been described as, quote, substantial, and this follows a call that the president jumped on late last night, with some utilities executives where he told them that he -- his administration wou
served on the homeland security department in the obama administration. first of all, you have a column that is on right now, cnn.com. it essentially praises the president for his response to the storm. you say it's the most significant of his presidency. let's listen to a quick clip of his comments. >> i think the public needs to prepare for the fact that this is going to take a long time for us to clean up. the good news is we will clean up, and we will get through this. >> so there are two things he points out. taking care of yourself and getting through this. really talking about the role of government, the heart of the role of government here, and the stark contrast between candidates. explain why you think this is so significant at this time. >> well, i think there's an important aspect to president obama's speech that gets lost in sort of the part sfwlan aspects of this, which is really about self-reliance and about the role of the government in promoting self-reliance amongst the citizenry, and so what you heard not just from obama -- this is why it's not necessarily part sxwlan
opposition to the obama administration rule, requiring to provide free contraception, complicates the president's relationship with voters. >> thank you for the update, poppy. we appreciate it. we've been asking folks to send in pictures of yourself, if you voted early and why. this comes from richard moore in orlando, florida. he said he he voted early for president obama. he said the biggest issue for him in the election was the economy. from ft. worth, texas, a picture of her granddaughter, aria, to show how important it is to vote. she voted early for mitt romney. she says the most important issue is the economy. cnn.com/startingpoint. of course, you want to tune in on tuesday night. cnn's live coverage of election night in america. we start at 6:00 pm eastern. >>> "end point" is up next. ♪ can't tell them apart, try as you might ♪ ♪ but a wise man once said that the secret to life ♪ ♪ is to find one that don't look the same ♪ ♪ find one that don't look ♪ the same ♪ check out the latest collection of snacks from lean cuisine. creamy spinach artichoke dip, cri
it overreads -- i mean, look, there's no question that the obama administration is both trying to do right by policy and governance and by politics the week out from an election. we've heard you guys on the show the last couple days where this is a place where good government rhymes with good politics. it's not trying to elbow its way into new york at the statue of liberty. they're saying hey, you guys want us to come? we'll be there. governor christie thinks it's good for his state. he doesn't want a political backdrop either. but he wants to get help for the people of his state. mayor bloomberg has been obviously disappointed with obama, but also disagreed with romney on almost everything and has been public on both fronts. i think mayor bloomberg is focused, as jim suggested, on trying to get the city lit up and online and maybe it's more of a pain to have the president logistically than anything else. >> that may be true. >> i think you muddied things up. >> really? >> i'm not sure that people that are watching -- >> i've muddied things up. >> -- don't think that i believe the presiden
he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his administration's storm response. this is what he had to say to piers morgan. >> this is so much bigger than an election. this is the livelihood of the people of my state. what they expect me to do is get the job done. when someone asks me an honest question, i give an honest answer. how has the president been to deal with? he has been outstanding to deal with on this. i look forward to seeing him tomorrow. >> this is the same man who questioned the president's leadership at the republican national convention. >> we need politicians to care more about doing something and less about being something. it is time to end this era of absentee leadership in the oval office and send real leaders back to the white house. america needs mitt romney and paul ryan! and we need them right now. >> political analysts are confused. romney surrogate, fox and friends, tried to get christie to dial it back. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i ha

may have new information about the benghazi cover-up, but first the administration in a desperate attempt to make obama presidential. released a photo of him during hurricane sandy. they did the same thing in the aftermath of raid that got osama bin laden. where is the president sitting in the situation room during the benghazi terror attack. you know why they have not released that photo. probably because it looks like this, empty, they don't know what to know what the president was up to as the assault was taking place. they have been trying to cover it up. as we now know the night of the attack, president was not focused on libya, he was getting ready for this, a campaign trip to las vegas. instead of staying in washington and getting to the bottom of the terrorist attack. we are also learning tonight that classified cable voofd by fox news, the u.s. mission in benghazi warned the state department back in mid-august less than a month before the assault that killed ambassador stevens that al-qaeda had training camps in benghazi and the consulate could to the defend against a coo
-- >> president obama has created jobs, particularly in ohio where we restored the auto industry. no one can take that away from this past administration, but what they can attribute to governor romney is let them go bankrupt, and also a misleading and distorting ad that tells not the truth but a distortion of that which is so unfair. they will vote the truth and the truth will set them free, and they will vote november 6th and be free. >> excellent, thanks so much to both of you. i appreciate it. of course, the drum beat carries on. just three days to go until election day. many discussions to be had before folks in large numbers hopefully make it to the polls. thanks so much to both of you. appreciate. >>> it's canceled for the first time in 42 years. talking about sunday's new york city marathon. critics were afraid the race would hurt the sandy recovery efforts. now runners have turned their attention from the race to those most in need.
